If you want pretty faces, a cool—but not super hipster—vibe and a mojito, Hotel Gaythering’s bar should be your first stop for the evening (and of course, being a hotel, you can stay the night). Billing itself as “straight-friendly”, this gay-centric hotel’s moniker says it all. The decor is a hodgepodge of vintage Americana and tropical ’50s elegance and even includes cool spots to pop a squat like a repurposed vintage dental chair. It’s a refuge from the South Beach madness, set aside in a mid-century structure off Lincoln Road. The music and TVs are never too loud for a conversation. The concierge service makes guests “instant locals”, and you won’t find any babies at this 21-and-older spot. Check out Wednesday trivia night, ’90s Thursdays, a ‘hoppy’ Hour that lets you hop-in after work for dirt cheap drinks, and Bares & Hares which welcomes otters, wolves, pigs, the site says and “even the Beavers”. Most importantly though, you can grab a glass dildo or buttplug—or even a bottle of lemonade—in the bar’s vending machine.
